Here we go, back to a 1.5 mile track. I like Kansas more than most of the mile and a half tracks. I think the racing there is competitive and fun to watch. Especially last fall when Joey and Matt got in to it. That apparently isn’t going away. There was more finger wagging after the race this past Sunday. I didn’t like to see Matt upside down but I do like to see that kind of rivalry in the sport.
So who will win. Still hard to bet against those Gibb’s Toyotas. They are making speed, speed, speed. I am going to though and I’m not going with any of my Chevrolet teams, as much as that hurts me. A Blue oval car will pull into victory lane this Sunday. It will be back to back wins for Team Penske but not for Brad. Joey Logano, who I am liking more and more will win.
In case you haven’t noticed Ford is making quite a push in the Sport. The RFR bunch are running better, Brad has won twice, and young Ryan Blaney is running very well in the Wood Brother’s 21. Next year they will have four more quality cars from Stewart Haas. I am beginning to second guess my earlier opinion that it will take that team time to adjust. All of this hurts me a lot. It also makes me happy to see more competitive cars on the track.
So it will be Joey who wins. He will qualify well, top three, and run up front all day. Kansas doesn’t have a history of a lot of yellow flags so look for a lot of green flag runs. Here is my top 5:
- Joey Logano
- Kyle Busch
- Brad Keselowski
- Jimmie Johnson
- Carl Edwards
Thanks for reading. Talk to you tomorrow.
